My partner, Paul, just found Mac software to help you create sock patterns. In the web page's words ... "Use your choice of yarn, your gauge, and take your knitting to new heights of perfection." The software is called Sock Wizard Mac and costs $34.95 US. I'm not a sock knitter (yet!) but thought some of you might be interested in the software.
Thanks to all the guys who showed up in chat last night for the group chat. It was fun. Nice to hear about what you're up to - and the projects you're currently knitting.
Missed all you guys who live anywhere near Eastern Standard Time. Would have loved to meet you in chat. Maybe next time.
Thanks, Parrot, for organizing the chat last night.
Does anyone have a favorite bulky yarn lace-type shawl pattern? I'd like to knit a shawl for my 87 year old mother in the coming months.
Does anyone have a pattern for (or have knitted) a side to side sweater or know where I can find such patterns? In the past, I've seen sweaters that are knit from wrist cuff to wrist cuff or the sleeves are knitted separately from the front and back (the front and back are knitted from side seam to side seam.) I've looked and looked for a pattern but am not having any luck finding one. I'd prefer one that knits up using bulky weight or at least worsted weight yarn.
And if you've knitted a side to side sweater, how did you like it's fit? Did it fit well or was in prone to stretching and bagging?
